WGP_News_Banner_Issue1We are delighted to announce that the first issue of the West Glasgow Pedallers We Go Pedal news is out now! This is the first of three newsletters that we will produce as part of the project.

IMG_20160204_WGP_NewsThe newsletter features lots of useful information to encourage people to cycle more, start cycling again and learn to cycle.

You can download the newsletter here – WeGoPedal_News_Issue1_Jan2016 – and you will find copies popping up in various places in the local area including community centres, medical centres and libraries.

We’d really like to hear you feedback so once you’ve had a chance to read it let us know what you think – and if there’s anything you would like to see in future issues just let us know!

CLS_Logo_AmnddWe are also very grateful to Cycle Law Scotland who have kindly sponsored the newsletter. And through the Road Share campaign they are also petitioning the Scottish Government for presumed liability on the roads.

You can keep up to date with the We Go Pedal project on our blog!

imageThe Cycle Network Millennium mile post in Jordanhill has been given a wee lick of paint to brighten it up. This is as part of the National Cycle Network 20th anniversary celebrations. This follows on from the recent coat of paint given to the mile post down in Yoker!

The Jordanhill mile post is located at the top end of the Victoria Park Nature Trail. It is the same design as the one in Yoker and is by Scottish sculptor Iain McColl and is called The Cockerel.

Glasgow food 1Glasgow has launched the first of a major new initiative aimed at recycling and cutting the amount of waste it sends to landfill. The Council has started to deliver kitchen waste caddies to kerbside households across the city, distributing approximately 12,000 each week. Residents will then be able to deposit their food waste from the new caddy into their brown garden waste bins for fortnightly collection. The new service will be rolled out between now and early April to cover all 113,500 kerbside properties across Glasgow.

Initial food waste collections will be phased in across kerbside households in the North West area of the city between now and mid-February. This follows on from a successful pilot project that ran from July 2013 to July 2014 in the North West area. Food waste, once collected, will go to two processing plants for conversion into compost and electricity.

In addition to the city-wide kerbside food waste collections, Glasgow is also improving its recycling services for tenements and other flatted properties, rolling out additional blue bins as well as food waste collection services for these households later this year. All the new services and investment are designed to make it easier for Glasgow’s residents to actively recycle more of their waste.
